2013 Domaine Sylvain Cathiard & Fils Nuits-Saint-Georges ‘Aux Murgers’ 1er Cru

$750.00

Sylvain Cathiard’s grandfather, a foundling from Savoie, came to Burgundy and found work with Domaine de la Romanée Conti (DRC) and Lamarche, subsequently buying a few parcels of vineyards for himself. His son André Cathiard began to bottle some of the crop.
In due course Sylvain began work with his father but then separated to start his own small domaine, until on his father’s retirement in 1995, Sylvain could take back the family vineyards on a renting agreement. He has now been joined by his son Sébastien.
The Cathiards have 5.5 hectares of vineyards in Vosne-Romanée, Nuits-St-Georges and Chambolle-Musigny, including tiny holdings in Clos de Vougeot and Romanée-St-Vivant. A recent addition (from 2006) to the range is the Nuits-St-Georges Aux Thorey.

Description

90-92 Points Allen Meadows
A notably ripe nose displays spice and highly complex aromas of cassis, plum liqueur, black raspberry and an interesting note of game. There is excellent volume and power and this couldn’t be more texturally different from the Aux Thorey. I like how well-integrated the tannins already are and this should amply reward a decade of more of cellaring.
